Default Huntington NEFTA winter league shoot

Thanks for another great shoot today folks. Wind certainly played it's part with the odd sneaky gust.

Special mention of course to Andy "The Fall Guy" Calpin (now to be known as Colt Seavers ) after his Angelina Balerina moment throwing himself on top of his rifle on the zero range.

See Andy, told you that I wouldn't mention it

It was interesting to hear about the lazy way to use knock downs, i.e. keeping your foot on the string so that the target doesn't actually fall in the first place

Thanks again folks, only one more to go

A great course today - perfect for the conditions Thanks to all involved.

Saw Calps late on in the second round and it didn't look like his arse over tit manouver had caused too many problems as he was still clear
